On my return, I shall hurl myself into hat construction. Squashy, vaguely renaissance hats are a huge boon to a largely female cast, half of whom are playing men. Long hair is not awful for the period, but the fringes need to be off the faces. Hence hats. Luckily they are not hard to make and are a great way of using up fabric scraps. Waste not want not. And here I suddenly turn into my mother, whose favourite saying this was.
In gaming news, it's treasure time for the Lost City crew. Half of them anyway. This split party have been battling insects and arachnids for the last six weeks. The team charged with taking down a huge spider queen and her spawn have succeeded. Their treasure has been consumed by said spider over the course of her long career. Apparantly. I'm not sure any spider, however huge, can reasonably eat weaponry, but so says the module. I'll roll with it. If the party want to pick through spider entrails, that's fine by me.

The other half of the party are still effecting regime change among the Trignotarbs. Their task is somewhat harder, but I am confident that they too will be collecting a treasure bundle and some valuable, level-raising XP shortly. They have an angel on standby to hoist them up and down the walls, so all should be well for them. If they can avoid the healing sapping larvae.
